Gailen Mapes69,684Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 22 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-10-22 10:42:51158102

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116935056

Dubrovnik is built on a peninsula that juts out into the Adriatic Sea.  I wanted to make and image showing the city surrounded by the sea so I found a spot on a nearby hill with a great view and waited for the sun to go down.  This is my favorite composition taken that evening.  It was such a beautiful sight to see the city lights come on with the sunset sky in the background.

Last October we visited Quebec's Eastern Townships and were luck y to catch the autumn color near its peak.  This is the B&B where we stayed.  We had a wonderful view of Lake Massawippi and the surrounding mountains.  It was such a beautiful sight!

This is the Maori Meeting House where Maori cultural shows are held on the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in Paihia which is the location of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi between the British Crown and Maori chiefs in 1840. While it did not exist at the time of the treaty, it is a wonderful example of traditional Maori architecture.

Ponte Sant'Angelo connects central Rome with the Vatican City and is also called St. Peter's Bridge because many pilgrims used this bridge on their way to St. Peter's Basilica. Both sides of the bridge are lined with statues of angels which are most impressive. I got up early so I could shoot it without any people and catch the beautiful dawn sky. It was such a beautiful sight to see in the early morning!

Google+ made a slideshow of images from my trip to Mexico earlier this year.  This must be produced by a program, but it is actually pretty good.

When we visited Mexico earlier this year one of our stops was Guadalajara. Even though Guadalajara is Mexico's second largest city, I had no idea what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. This is the DegolladoTheater one of Guadalajara's most important landmarks. Unfortunately we did not have a chance to tour the interior, but it was certainly a very impressive building on the outside. I like this shot with a horse drawn carriage stopped in front.

The Hungarians like their thermal spas almost as much as the Japanese like hot springs, but I was impressed with the size and opulence of the Thermal spas in Budapest.  They were much bigger than anything I have ever seen in Japan.  This is the outdoor pool at Gellert Baths.  What a beautiful place to have a relaxing soak!

I just got back from a great trip to Italy.  I haven't processed my images yet, but this is am image of Civita from a trip several years ago.  Civita is a charming medieval hill town in southern Umbria. It was very prosperous for several hundred years until the road leading to it was washed away. Since then it is as if it has been in a time warp as nothing has changed since medieval times. This modern bridge replaces the road that was washed away. Recently, Rick Steves has made this a popular sport for tourists.

 For the past week and a half I have been traveling around Italy. This is a shot of the historic district in Florence. I like the leading lines of this shot.

This is an aspen grove I found near Steamboat Springs several years ago. Aspens turn such a beautiful shade of yellow in the autumn, but I was surprised to see the ground cover turn almost the same shade of yellow underneath this grove. I like to try to find compositions which have one very dominant color. This image obviously is yellow.

 When we were in Zagreb we visited the Croatian National Theater.  This beautiful old building was completed in 1895 when Croatia was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire.  At the time Zagreb was a relatively small city so building a theater this large was quite an accomplishment.  While we did not have a chance to attend any performances, I really enjoyed taking a tour of this grand building.

When I visited California in the spring many wildflowers were blooming.  In Santa Barbara I went to the botanical garden where they had planted several beds with typical wildflowers, one of which was this yellow lupine.  It was the first time I had ever seen yellow lupine so I just had to take some photos.  I like the out of focus background in this image which lets your eye focus on the in focus flower in the foreground.

This is Hanauma Bay on the southeast coast of Oahu.  This beautiful lagoon is the crater of an ancient volcano which is now open to the ocean on one side.  On my very first trip to Hawaii I remember snorkeling among more fish than I had ever seen in one spot before.  We had some frozen peas the fish would literally eat them out of our hands. But it is also very beautiful when viewed from this lookout high on the ridge above the bay.  Just looking at this photo makes me want to go back again.

Several years ago I traveled around Texas and one of our stops was South Padre Island on the Gulf of Mexico. We found these beach morning glories in full bloom. I had never seen morning glories blooming on the beach before so I took several photos and this is my favorite.

To celebrate the first day of autumn I decided to post an image with autumn color.  I found this sea of yellow near Steamboat Springs, CO several years ago.  Aspen groves are connected underground and the entire grove is actually one living organism which is why a whole hillside of aspens turns color at exactly the same time.  Needless to day it is a beautiful sight to see and Colorado has some of the best.

I am a big fan of piers because they are a bridge between the world of dry land and the ocean.  This is the Jekyll Wharf on Jekyll Island, GA.  In the early 20th century Jekyll Island was a posh resort club for the wealthy elite and this pier was the only access to the island.  Now the island is connected to the mainland by a causeway so the pier has become a seafood restaurant.  I had lunch at this restaurant and it was so nice to be able to look out over the ocean while eating.

Tarragona is a beautiful old city on the Mediterranean coast southwest of Barcelona.  It was a regional capital when Spain was a province of the Roman Empire and for many centuries was much larger than Barcelona itself.  This is the main square with the city hall at the end.  This square is normally crowded with many people, but I shot it early in the morning to catch it without any people.  I am a big fan of the town squares in Europe.  They are just so liveable and seem to invite human interaction.

I love the islands of the Pacific Northwest.  Most Americans only visit the San Juan Islands, but just north of the border the Canadian Gulf Islands are also wonderful.  Whenever I visit the islands I like to get up early to shoot the dawn light.  This is an image from Beddis Beach on Salt Spring Island.  Because the ocean is sheltered by many different islands the water can be calm enough to produce perfect mirror reflections, a phenomenon I have never seen on the ocean anywhere else.  It was such a beautiful sight!

Kutna Hora is a very well preserved medieval town in central Bohemia. In the 14th century Kutna Hora had the largest silver mine in Europe and produced silver currency used all over the continent and as a result was very prosperous.

Kutna Hora is a very well preserved medieval town in central Bohemia. In the 14th century Kutna Hora had the largest silver mine in Europe and produced silver currency used all over the continent and as a result was very prosperous. Today it is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of my favorite towns in the Czech Republic.  This is a view of the city from St. Barbara's Church.

On my last trip to Japan I spent several days in Osaka, Japan's second largest city.  This is a pedestrian bridge leading to Osaka Station in the center of downtown.  During rush hour this area is very crowded, but I got up early to shoot it without any people.  This is a very typical urban scene in modern Japan.  If you removed the sign for Osaka Station it could be almost anywhere.

This is Orlando's column which is the physical and spiritual center of Dubrovnik.  In medieval times, important proclamations were made here and his forearm was used as a standard measurement when merchants sold cloth.  I got up early so I could make this image with no people and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

When we visited Mexico earlier this year our first stop was Puerto Vallarta which faces the Pacific Ocean.  One night we had dinner at a restaurant with this view of the city.  As we were eating I took many photos, but this is my favorite.  I just love the beautiful twilight sky with the illuminated city in the foreground.  The food was quite nice as well.  It was such a great evening!

Last weekend I completed my last art fair for this season and this image of Scripps Pier in La Jolla was one of my most popular prints.  A nice couple in Boise ordered a 30 X 45 metal print of this image for their living room.  It was the first time I have sold such a large print.  I just love the pastel colors of this image and the way it draws your eye to the end of the pier.

Burano is small island which is a short ride on the water bus from Venice.  Burano was originally a fishing village and the fishermen always painted their fishing boats in bright colors so they were easily visible.  The local people used the leftover paint from the fishing boats to paint their houses and they had a rule that no two houses next to each other could be painted the same color.  This custom resulted in one of the most beautifully vibrant places I have ever seen.  I paired these two different images of Burano as a diptych.  A nice couple from Twin Falls, ID purchased a large framed version of this at Boise Art in the Park last weekend.

Dubrovnik is built on a peninsula that juts out into the Adriatic Sea.  I wanted to make and image showing the city surrounded by the sea so I found a spot on a nearby hill with a great view and waited for the sun to go down.  This is my favorite composition taken that evening.  It was such a beautiful sight to see the city lights come on with the sunset sky in the background.

In Slovenia I visited the Zelske Caves just outside Ljubljana.  A river carved the caves out of the Karst limestone which is so common in this area.  It was a beautiful sight to see the lush green reflected in the river surrounded by the walls of the cave.

Our last stop in Croatia was Dubrovnik, Pearl of the Adriatic.  In the medieval times Dubrovinik was an independent city state and maritime power rivaling Venice.  This is Pile Gate, the main entrance to Dubrovnik Old Town.  The city wall and fortifications are very impressive and protected the city from any attacks by the Ottoman Turks.  I like the leading lines of this image and the beautiful dawn light.

As summer winds down I thought some people might like to see a cool and refreshing image.  When I was in Slovenia I made a brief visit to Triglav National Park in late May.  This is the Soca River which runs through the valley there.  I was impressed with the large volume of water flowing through this mountain stream.  It was such a beautiful place!

From Split we took the ferry out to Hvar Island. This is the view looking down from Hvar Castle at sunset. Hvar town was an important outpost for the Venetian Republic and most of the buildings in the old town date from this period. The red tile roofs look so beautiful huddled up against the harbor and the Adriatic Sea.

The slot canyons in the Southwest are so photogenic. This is an image I made at Lower Antelope Canyon near Page, AZ. I just love the lines in the rock created by thousands of year of erosion which make this image an abstract design. Recently my cousin purchased a print of this image to go in her new home in Arizona. I can't wait to visit and see where she will display it.

This is the courtyard of the Old Seminary of Quebec in Quebec City.  It was founded by the first bishop of New France in 1663 to prepare young men to become priests in the North American French colonies.    I like the leading lines of this image and the beautiful clouds in the sky.

This is the town square in Telc a well preserved medieval town in the Czech Republic.  Telc prospered as a center of commerce in the 16th and 17th centuries.  It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  If I make another trip to the Czech Republic this is one town I would like to spend more time in.

While we were staying in Split, we took a day trip up the coast to Trogir. This is a view looking out over Trogir from the  cathedral tower. Trogir is a lovely medieval town that was a major economic center in the 12th and 13th centuries and was later part of the Venetian Republic. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and according to their report Trogir is "the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex in all of central Europe". It was such a charming place!

When my father lived in Florida, one of my favorite things to do when visiting was to photograph birds on the beach.  I often went to Ft. Myers Beach early in the morning.  This is a little sanderling I found there several years ago.  The early morning light on Florida's beaches is so beautiful.  I like the warm sunrise lighting of this image and also the selective focus.

Several years ago I visited Louisiana and spent one afternoon at Oak Alley an antebellum plantation near New Orleans.  It is called Oak Alley because of the live oak trees that line brick walk leading to its front door.  I just love these majestic old trees which have grown together to create what is almost a front porch for the plantation house.  It is such a beautiful place allowing visitors to glimpse what the old South was like.

Split was first settled by the Romans in the 3rd century AD when Emperor Diocletian decided to return to his homeland of Dalmatia to build his retirement palace there.  Many of the buildings from the original palace are still standing and are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  This is the Peristyle or main square in the center of the ruins.  I got up early to shoot it without any people in the early dawn light.  I like the leading lines of this image which draw your eye to the end of the square which is where Emperor Diocletian would make public appearances.

Our next stop in Croatia was Split, its second largest city.  Split has a very long history and was first developed as a retirement palace for the Roman emperor, Diocletian in the 3rd century AD.  Like many other cities on the Adriatic coast Split was also part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries and the old town still has a distinctly Italian flavor.  I found this lookout on a hill north of the city with a great view of the harbor and old town.  The city lights reflected in the harbor were such a beautiful sight to see at twilight.

This is an image from my trip to New Zealand last year.  I had seen some fantastic images of the Moeraki Boulders so I scheduled to stay 2 nights in Moeraki.  The first day was completely overcast with no good photo ops, but the second morning I was lucky to see this beautiful dawn over the ocean.  The geological name for these boulders is concretions.  The boulders are much harder than the rock which originally surrounded them so the pounding surf eroded the softer rock leaving the round boulders stranded on the beach.  I recently learned from a Maori speaking Kiwi that the name Moeraki means sleeping duck.  Apparently the Maoris could see a duck with its head tucked under its wing in the shape of these boulders.  It was such a beautiful sight to see these colorful clouds hanging over this surreal landscape.

I am a big fan of art nouveau architecture.  This is the Professors Reading Room at the Croatian State Archive in Zagreb.  It was originally the Croatian National Library, the equivalent of our US Library of Congress.  Since Croatia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, its architects were strongly influenced by Viennese architecture which at the beginning of the 20th century was the center of the art nouveau movement.  This beautiful building completed in 1913 is well known as the best example of art nouveau architecture in Zagreb.

When we visited Montreal last year I went up to the top of Mount Real in the evening to see the city lights come on.  It was such a beautiful sight to see the illuminated city spreading out below a deep blue sky with the St. Lawrence River in the background.

When we visited Baja California several years ago, I was amazed that the desert was literally next to the ocean. I have never been anywhere else where the desert is so close to the ocean. This large cactus which looks like a saguaro is actually a cardon cactus which only grows in Baja. I think it looks surreal with the tropical ocean in the background. Baja is such a beautiful place!

Venice is one of my favorite cities.  Everyone knows that Venice is a city of canals, but it is also a city of bridges.  To get from one part of Venice to another one must often cross over many bridges, most of which are pedestrian only.  This is a little bridge near the hotel we stayed at.  I like the reflection of the bridge and buildings in the canal.  Just looking at this photo brings back many fond memories.

his is another shot of Rovinj just after sunset. Rovinj is an old walled city dating back to the Roman era. It was part of the Venetian republic for many centuries and still has a very Italian atmosphere. The bell tower you can see at the top of the hill was modeled after the one in Venice. Such a beautiful place to visit!
